GHD’s New Original Styler Review!

GHD’s New Original Styler Review!

Thank you to GHD for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. I have been straightening my hair for about 20 years give or take so you can imagine all the things I’ve tried over the years to get the perfect look, and GHD’s New Original Styler is the BEST I’ve tried so far! I know those are big words, and I genuinely mean them! I was able to sit down with the lovely head of education at GHD and she taught me everything there is to know about this tool so we can all had a Good Hair Day, that’s what DHD stands for, cute huh?! First, 365 is the magic number. GHD products are sleek, simple, and come with one button that when pressed, heats up your styler to 365 degrees in 30 seconds and holds the temperature until the automatic shut off at 30 minutes! Why 365 degrees? They discovered that any hotter damaged the hair, and lower just wasn’t enough to get the job done without having to keep going over the same piece multiple times. They did the hard work for us so we can have beautifully styled locks while keeping it healthy. It’s truly as easy as the click of a button! What I Used: A few other features I’ve been loving about the

Crafting with Kai!

Crafting with Kai!

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. Kai has always loved all things art and creating things. His imagination is one of my very favorite parts of him! So when I saw these craft kits at Walmart, I knew he would absolutely love them. I love that they are easy enough that he can do them on his own (with my supervision) but still challenging enough to keep him interested. So far his favorite has been the Robot window art and the Monster craft! Roman helped him make the cutest little creatures, and I painted a few robots with him and throughly enjoyed it! I love that crafts can bring the whole family together to make memories. Can’t wait to paint the rocket ship with Kai next! Walmart Home is always my go to when it comes to arts and crafts for my little artist. They always have the supplies I’m looking for on hand, and even better, full kits to let his mind run wild with ideas. With the temps starting to drop, I know we’ll be spending much more time in doors, so it feels good to be stocked up on fun activities to keep my energetic guy entertained. If your family is into creating projects, I promoise you will LOVE all

Rocker Chic Look For Less!

Rocker Chic Look For Less!

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. I’m so excited to show you this look all purchased from Walmart, because it has a lot of my favorite trends! First up, print mixing. I love the way a graphic tee looks with almost any animal print, and this skirt is SO good! The pleats are so flattering, and it looks adorable pulled up over the bump. Such a fun and comfortable switch up from sweats and leggings I keep reaching for as I enter the 3rd trimester and still want to feel cute and put together! I actually ordered a 2 sizes in this tee, the M and XL and prefer the fit of the M better when tucked into the skirt, so I’m going to say to runs a little L. It has the cutest rhinestone details that pop with the gems on the stiletto booties too! So rocker chic! Another trend I can’t get enough of is blazers. The buttons on this one are giving me major designer vibes, but for less than $50! Such a good deal! As for the rest of my outfit details and sizing, here is the info: Blazer: Size XL / Graphic T-shirt: Size M / Skirt: Size XL / Booties: Size up 1/2 / Purse: 4 color

Keeping Halloween Traditions Alive With Walmart+

Keeping Halloween Traditions Alive With Walmart+

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. Walmart recently released their Walmart+ membership, and I have been loving the benefits! Benefits vary by location, but in our zip code we receive free unlimited delivery with a $35 minimum (some restrictions apply), member prices on fuel that save us 5 cents per gallon of gas at Walmart and Murphy gas stations, and the ability to check out with mobile scan and go using our phones when we shop in-store which is my personal favorite! I just scan as I shop and the check out process is completely contactless. It saves so much time! October is one of the busiest time of the year for my business getting holiday content ready to go, fitting in all my favorite Halloween festivities, and this year we’re also getting everything ready for baby boy to arrive! Its a crazy time of year so we love the free unlimited delivery ($35 minimum, restrictions) on groceries (and more) with our Walmart+ membership. Before trick or treating every year we have a festive dinner called spooky spaghetti. We all look forward to enjoying a fun and yummy dinner before hitting the streets with Kai. I’m so grateful that I didn’t even have to leave my house to get all the ingredients here for

Fashion Finds From Walmart

Fashion Finds From Walmart

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. Walmart has a new brand I have been loving called Free Assembly! I love the 70’s vibes of the textures like this corduroy skirt and matching jacket. They are also super size inclusive and most styles range from size 0-22 or XS-XXXL! Amazing right! I sized up to the 18 in the skirt for the bump, and am wearing the XL in the jacket. Fall and plaid just go so well together, so this dress and boot combo has me swooning. I am in the XL in dress, I’d say it runs a smidge big, but will leave me some room to grow with baby. Walmart always slays it on the prices, everything I’ve shown here today is so affordable without having to sacrifice quality! As always, let me know if you have any questions! xx -Krychele

Beauty Chat W/ Nordstrom

Beauty Chat W/ Nordstrom

Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own. As my due date is getting closer and closer, I’ve purchased a few items from Nordstrom to help me get through from now through the 4th trimester. I was so excited to find this black founded brand called Ebi that focuses on mamas. Kudos to Nordstrom by the way for carrying more and more black owned and operated brands, I can’t wait to keep shopping them. I have been using the Ebi Oil on my belly every night to help soothe the itching as my stomach stretches to accommodate baby Valenzuela! It is all natural and really hydrating. The best part, it doesn’t have a strong smell. My nose is extra sensitive in pregnancy so even if the smell isn’t necessarily bad, sometimes it’s still overwhelming. I also picked up the postpartum bath soak, and herbal tea. The soak will help my body with the healing process, and tea to balance milk supply and overall wellbeing. I’ll definitely report back on how I like them both! Other beauty items from my daily routine: I also wanted to be sure to include my other favorite beauty items I use regularly. Some are new, and others are tried and true favorites I’ve kept purchasing over the years! New: Sigma
